Our Care Staff

We take every care to match our 24 hour live in care staff to your needs, so you can always be sure of the right care and the right carer. Outlined below are just some of the steps and criteria we use to ensure that the Versacare staff you receive are amongst the most highly trained and relevant to your care requirements.

Prior to our Live-in Care Workers being introduced to you, they will have been carefully selected and personally interviewed face to face.
We will have received at least two references and be in receipt of a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check satisfactory to our high standards. We will have checked their identity and eligibility to work in the United Kingdom.

We maintain a register of qualified live-in care workers in sufficient numbers and diversities to enable individual requirements to be met. We work hard to consider your needs and those of our care workers to ensure a compatible match.

Versacare Live-in care standards are high, as proven in our Care Quality Commission Report.

Live-in care and support will always be delivered respectfully and empathetically, ensuring dignity and privacy at all times.

Our Live-in care workers are experienced and have a range of relevant qualifications, skills and personal attributes; and benefit from on-going in-house training.
